Vice-chancellor appeals to government to fix bad portions of Oyo-Ogbomoso road
The new Vice-Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, Prof. Timothy Adebayo, has appealed to concerned authorities to urgently repair bad portions of the Oyo-Ogbomoso Road.
Prof Adebayo spoke on the dilapidated condition of the road following the resumption of students of the university.
He noted that the students and other road users have had harrowing experiences plying the road.
“The road is so bad that people spend hours on it, especially the portion in front of our university. I am compelled to call on the state and Federal Governments to urgently repair that road in order to alleviate the suffering of road users, especially our students and staff who ply that road daily,” Prof Adebayo said.
The vice-chancellor, who assumed duty a week ago, said he felt compelled to make the appeal not only because the bad road affects the university community, but also because it is a major entry to Ogbomoso, Ilorin and other parts of Northern Nigeria, thus affecting the economy of the state.
He urged the relevant authorities to carry out urgent repairs because it has a great economic impact on Oyo State in terms of movement of people and goods, including foodstuff.
